UCAS offers, drawing (etc)

By Michael Gakuran | | Journal | 4 Comments |

Well, I have 5 out of my 6 UCAS choices, including Reading! Yay! ^_^ I need 320 points from 3 A levels and 1 AS level to enter Reading, grades BBC to enter Leeds (which, incidentally, is nearly the same offer as Oxford Brookes [BCC]… o.O ). I also got a conditional offer from King’s College London – my last choice which I just threw on my form to see if I could get an offer from a top ranking University (it came 18th in the Times overall tables and 4th for Philosophy in the country). They want ABB, with an A in either Religious Studies or Maths (not likely for the latter), excluding General Studies. It’ll be interesting to see if I actually am able to make those grades in the end, but unfortunately for Kings, unless something radical happens, they aren’t in my final two because it’s Philosophy only, and not Philosophy and Japanese.

SOAS is the only one I haven’t heard from, but I don’t really care now, considering it didn’t do my preferred course combination in the first place and Lianne and Chris both said it looked bad when they visited it. It’ll be a toss up between Reading and Leeds or Reading and Oxford Brookes. My best wishes to Lianne, Dave and everyone else still waiting on replies. I hope it all turns out well for everyone in the end…

I haven’t done any schoolwork yet today, but I have been drawing! ^_^ (That’s a plus for me as I don’t create enough time to do it). I must do more real life sketching and anatomy studies. I finally twigged that I’m never going to get anyway with Manga/Anime unless I know anatomy inside out (ooo err…) :P.

Oh, and this current song *rocks*!! I think the full version is 20 minutes, the album version 15 and this version is 8, but the lyrics are so cool ^_^. Danny Elfman is great. The lyrics are here if you care to look:

Don’t you ever wonder why, nothing ever seems to change
If it does it’s for the worse, seems it’s just a modern curse
Sometimes when I take a peek, outside of my little cage,
Everyone looks so asleep, will they die before they wake

And, hey. . . don’t you know? We’re just products of our time and hey . . .
What d’ya say? Show me yours, I’ll show you mine

Better dumb and happy than, smart and without any friends
Better cute and better loud, better join up with the crowd
Keep up or be left behind, there’s a dust storm in my mind
Seems I can’t see straight these days, doesn’t matter anyway and
Hey . . . don’t you know? We’re just products of our times and
Hey, what d’ya say? Show me yours, I’ll show you mine

Hey, what d’ya say? Hey, what d’ya say? Please don’t ever –
Oh God, here’s that question now. The one that makes me go insane
I’d gladly tear my heart out if you never, never, never, never change

I like my stupid life, just the way it is
And i wouldn’t even change it, for a thousand flying pigs
‘Cause I like you, just the way you are
I like your face, just the way it is
And i wouldn’t even change it, for a herd of screaming kids
‘Cause I like you, just the way you are

I like you though you may not like me back
I would dazzle you with brilliance, if I only had the knack
‘Cause i like you, just the way you are

I like my stupid life, just the way it is
And the cast that surrounds me, like a flock of screaming pigs
And it hurts my brain to think of all, the stupid things I’ve said
And if I could change the future, I would change the past instead

‘Cause I’m dreaming again . . . ‘Cause I’m dreaming again

And I say, baby – sometimes I worry about you
Getting oh so far away, tell me what to do
And I say, baby . . . sometimes I worry about you
Every day I feel the same, don’t you feel it too
And I say, baby . . . sometimes I worry about me
Seems i’m falling down a lot, in between the scenes
I say, baby . . . sometimes I worry about me
Light another cigarette, never change, never change

It’s the same thing every day, nothing ever seems to change and I . . .

Do you really want to, really want to,
Hey, whatd’ya say? Hey, whatd’ya say? Please don’t ever –
Testaments and growing pains. Tranquilizers for the soul.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained – evolution’s cruelest joke
Why is everyone upset? I once knew but I forget. Something happened,
Something strange, something it appears has changed

Hey . . . don’t you know? We’re just products of our times
And hey, what d’ya say? Show me yours, I’ll show you mine

Hey, what d’ya say? Hey, what d’ya say? Please don’t ever –
Oh God, here’s that question now, the one that makes me go insane
I’d gladly tear my heart out if you;
Never change, never change, never change, never change
Never, never, never, never, change . . .

    The title is in the ‘current music’ section ^_^ – it’s ‘Change – Oingo Boingo’ the 8 minute version. And I did post about my UCAS a while ago, maybe you missed it…

    Well done with all your offers! I didn’t even know you’d sent off your UCAS application yet! Your school must be more organised than ours.

    So what is the title of this song then?
